Give it a day under some lamps to cure completely. Wiat about a week or two depending on the weather there before washing it and if you have to dont use soap.

Wait about a month before waxing or polishing

They let you take it before it dried?!?

Not cool.

I would honestly wait a week or two before installing it. That way you dont need to worry about elements messing with the paint. Since it's not already on that is.

I've heard mixed stories about how long to wait before washing and waxing, but a month seems to be a good amount of time.
